Eufy Cam 2K Pan & Tilt – Video quality

Eufy Cam 2K Pan & Tilt – Video quality

I bought Eufy Indoor Cam 2K Pan & Tilt for use with HomeKit. However, there are some significant quality differences when using HomeKit compared to the Eufy Security App software.

Short answer: the image quality is significantly better using the Eufy Security application and not connecting to the HomeKit.

Here are the quality differences I extracted from the file metadata using EXIFTool. I hope you find this useful and let me know if you get similar results. I can only make a clear difference by watching the video.
